2/21/2014 Group Watch: Common Core

This week, State Senator Scott Beason, as promised, introduced legislation to repeal the Common Core curricula in the state, a popular cause with conservatives. Beason, who is a candidate for Congress, apparently ignored the message from Senate Pro Tem Del Marsh that any such legislation was dead on arrival. Most observers say the bill has little chance of passage this session while also acknowledging the publicity value for Beason as a congressional candidate. Most elected public officials say the decision is most appropriately left to the State Board of Education, who has already approved the Alabama College and Career Ready Standards, based in part on the common core standards developed by the National Governors’ Association and supported by the business community.
